THII RIOHT, TO BK KEPT 11IQHT, WHEN WBONG, TO BE PCT RIOHT. EnEXSBUIt: THURSDAY::::::::::::::::FEimU AR Y 9 Abolishment of Slavery. Slavery relic of the darker ages bane of our National existence tbo prolific source whence- have emanated the untold evils now afflicting us as a people Slavery is no more ! It was killed in the House of Representatives on Tuesday of last week, 31st ultimo, by the docisivo vote of "119 to 56, and it ouly remains to the States in their sovereign capacity to bury the loathsome carcase fathoms deep out of sight, and we will be troubled by it or its ghost no more forever. "We give on to day's outside the Associated Press account of the deliberations of the House on the subject, together with the yeas and nays, to which we refer the reader. It will be remembered this Amendment was introduced and passed in the Senate on the Sth April Ixst, by the vote of 38 to C. It came betoro the House Juue 15th, following, where, after much debate, it was defeated by 94 yeas to tU naya two thirds of the members not concurring. Fresh instructions having been issued to Congress by the people at the late elec tions, a reconsideration of the question was moved by Mr. Ashley, of Ohio, aud it came up before the House again the present session. Wiser counsels prevailed this time, and, after twenty or thirty speeches thereupon, the Amendment was finally adopted by G3 majority, or three more thau two-thirds of all the members voting. Nothing now remains to make it the supreme law of the land but its ratifi cation by the Legislatures of twenty-seven State?, or three-fourths of all the States of the Union. The States that may bo counted on as certain to vote for the amendment are, Maine. New Hampshire, Vermont, Massa chusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio, In diana, Ulicois, Michigan, Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Missouri, Kansas, Nevada, Oregon, California, West Virginia in all twenty-two. New Jersey, Delaware aud Kentucky are doubtful. Wc think, how ever, that both New Jersey and Kentucky will finally give their consent to it. If the present Legislature of Delaware refuses to do so, as it possibly will, the people will next year elect those who will do it. The vote of the reconstructed States of Ten nessee, Arkansas and Louisiana may be counted on with certainty, and will settle the question. No time is fixed by the Constitution within which the ratification must tale place, the' votes of the States being valid whenever cast. The Amendment has already been adopted by the following States Mary land, Illinois, Rhode Islaud, Michigan, Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. Three Pennsylvania Democrats, Messrs. Bailey, Coffroth and M'Allister, voted aye on the question. The country owes thsse wen, with the other Democrats who voted with them, a debt of gratitude it can nevr repay. They have shown themselves the men for this crisis in a great country's affairs ; lovers of their country and their country's good ; fit representatives of the progressive principle evoked by the war that Slavery and whatever else opposes must be wiped out to the end of the resto ration of the Uuion. "Well done, faith ful servants !" With regard to our own Representative, Hon. Archibald M'Allister, we may be permitted a word. Born and bred a Dem ocrat, and elected to the position he now fills on a purely Democratic platform, lie has proven himself a patriot cf the first water by cutting loose from his old associ ations and ranging himself o:i the side of Rightand Justice. The moral courage necessary to the performance of such a tcp should not be underrated. The man who walks up to- the cannon's mouth unmoved, or faces danger in any form without the tremor of a ruuselc, is brave, n9 the world counts bravery. BGt how inGnitely braver, in a core exalted seiise of the ;ord, is he, who, turning his back on his Prty which he is the favored exponent and on all - its principles and tradition!, whb a prayer to God for 6uc 0Cs, and unnio'vd bv tho storm of defs- iiiation and foul abuse he well knows will follow hi act, disavows a heresy which has been bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh from youth up! " The former elicits our applause, yet it is brute courage the latter is a virtue which might be attribu ted tu the god?. All honor, then, to Archibald M'Allister! Any former mis takes he may have committed ara lost sight of in our admiration of the sublime, ennobling qualities he has herein evinced. 'When this subject was before the Hous e on a former occasion, I voted against the measure. 1 have been in fa vor of exhausting all the means of concil iation to restore the Union as our fathers made it. 1 am for the Union, and utterly opposed to secession or dissolution in any cay or iliape. The result f all the peace missions, and especially that of Mr. Blair, has satisfied ine that nothing short of recognition of their independence will satisfy the Southern Confederacy. It must therefore be destroyed, and in. voting for the 2rcsenl measure, I cast my vote against the corner-stone of the Southern Confederacy, AND DECLARE ETERNAL WAR AGAINST THE ENEMIES OF MY COUNTRY." There is no uncertain utterance no if nor buts about that. The meaning is clearly apparent. It i3 the determination of a strong man to sink party and political prejudices away out of sight, and see in the future his couutry, his whole country, and nothing but his country. In the name of his constituents, we thank Mr. M'Allister for the stand he has taken aud the vote he has cast, confident he will never regret either. Xo Peace ! It is well known that informal negotia tions looking to Peace between the North and South, with President Lincoln and Secretary Seward as participants on behalf of the former, and Vice President A. II. Stevens, R. M. T. Hunter, of the rebel Congress, and Judge John A. Campbell, on behalf of the latter, were attempted last week. The conference was had on board a boat at Hampton Roads, and last ed four hours, at the expiration of which time the paities separated, mutually con vinced that an amicable adjustment of the differences between them was impossible. Thus vanish into thin air any hopes en tertained that the rebels, taking counsel of wisdom, are ready and willing to come back into the Union. Unless they are guaranteed everything they demanded at the beginning, which is precisely what we could not and cannot give them unless we acknowledge their independence, and so ad ib it the war on our part has been a mistake and a failure unless we consent to a disruption of the Union, to prevefit which we have all along been fighting, their voice is still for war. Very well. We undertook the job of putting down tbo rebellion in maintenance of certain principles. These principles are as highly cherished now as ever, and we will con tinue to maintain them to the end. God giving us strength, these principles must and will triumph. The eud may not be just yet, but it is certain. So war let it be! Rebel Barbarity. Cambria County and tlie Dralt.

The joint resolution ratifying the act passed by Congress abolishing Slavery in the United States, came before the Penn sylvania Legislature for consideration on Friday. In the Senate, it was passed by a vote of 14 to 8; and in the House, by 55 to 33. The Union men voted solid for, an J the Democrats against it. Penn sylvania thu.? goes for freedom for all, and is among the caiJiest of the States to ratify the amendment. SSfGcn. Sherman i? moving on the hot-bed of treason Charleston. Stirring ncw3 may be expected from' that direction soon. It is reported that a general ex change of prisoners has been agfeedupon between Grant and Leo, to go inta effect immediately. Z37 Hon. G. A. Krcrner, of IHinoi, II. S. Minister to Spain has resigned his r-osition. The following is the testimony given before the Committee on the Conduct of the War, by Albert D. Richardson, a cor respondent of the New York Tribune, who lately escaped from rebel captivity: "I was captured by the rebels May 3d, 18G3, at midnight, on a hay bale in the Mississippi Iiiver, opposite Vicksburg. After confinement in six different prisons, 1 was 6ent to Salisbury, N. C- February 3d, 1864, and kept there until December 18th, 1864, when I escaped. For eight months Salisbury was the most endurable prison I had seen. There were six hun dred inmates. They were exercised in the open air, comparatively well fed and kindly treated. Early in October, ten thousand regular prisoners of war arrived. Our treatment immediately changed into a scene of cruelty and horror. The prison was densely crowded ; rations were cut down, and issued very irregularly; friends outside could not even send in a plate of food ; the prisoners suffered constantly and intensely for want of bread and shelter; those who had to live or die on prison rations always suffered from hunger. Very frequently one or more divisions of one thousand men would receive no rations for twenty-four hours; some were left without a morsel of food for forty-eight hours; a few who had money would pay from five to twenty dollars in rebel currency for a little loaf of bread ; many, though the weather was very inclement, and the snow frequent, sold the coats from their backs and the ehoes from their feet. "I was assured on authority entirely trustworthy, that .a great eommissary warehouse near the prison was filled with provisions ; that the commissary found it difficult to find storage for his flour and meal; that when a subordinate aked the post commandant, Major John H. Gee, 'Shall I give the prisoners full rations?' he replied, 'No! G d n them; give them quarter rations I know from personal observation that corn and pork are very abundant in the region about Salisbury. For weeks the prisoners had no shelter whatever. They were all thinly clad; thousands were barefooted; not one in twenty had an overcoat or blanket; many hundred were without shirts, and hundreds more without blouses. One Sibley tent and one 'A tent were furnished to each squad of one hundred; with the closest crowding, these sheltered about half the prisoners. The rest burrowed in the ground, crept under the buildings, or shivered through the nights in the open air upon tho frozen ground. "If the rebels at the time of our cap ture had not stolen our shelter tents, blan kets, clothing and money, wo would not have suffered from cold. If the prison authorities had permitted us, either on parole or under guard, to cut logs within two miles of the prison, wc would gladly have built comfortable and ample barracks in one week. Dut the commandant would not consent. He did not even furnish one half of the fuel needed. ''The hospitals were in a horrible con dition. More than half who entered the hospitals died in a very few days. The deceased, always without coffins, were loaded into the dead cart, piled on each other like logs of wood, and so driven out to be thrown in a trench and covered with earth. The rebel surgeons were generally humane and attentive, and endeavored to improve the shocking condition of the hospitals, but the Salisbury and Richmond authorities disregarded their protests. "On November 25th, many of the pris oners had been without food for forty eight hours, and were desperate. Without any matured plan a few of them said, 'We may as well die one in way as another. Let us break out of this horrible place.' Some of them wrested guns from a relief of fifteen rebel soldiers, just entering the yard, killing two who resisted, and wound ing five or six others, and opened the fence, but they had neither adequate tools nor concert of action. Before they could effect a .breach every gun of the garrison was turned on them, the field pieces open ed with grape and cannister and they dis persed to their quarters. In five minutes from its beginning the attempt was quelled, and hardly a prisoner -was to be-seen in the yard. The rebels killed, in all, sixteen, and wounded sixty. Not one-tenth of the prisoners had taken part in the attempt, and many of them were ignorant of it until they heard the guns. "Deliberate, cold-blooded murders of peaceable men, where there was no pre tence that they were breaking the prison regulation, were very frequent. Our lives were never safe for one moment. Any sentinel, at any hour of the day or night, could deliberately shoot any prisoner, or fire into a group of prisoners, black or white, and would never be taken off his post for it. I left about six thousand five hundred remaining in the garrison, De cember 18th, and they were then dying at the average rate of twenty-eight per day, or thirteen per cent, per month. "The simple truth is that the rebel au thorities are murdering our soldiers at Salisbury by cold ?nd hunger, while they might easily supply them with ample food and fuel. They are doing this systemat ically, arid I believe are killing them intentionally for the purpose either of forcing our government to an exchange, or forcing our men into the rebel army." Mr. Browne's testimony is ta the same effect as the above. A Remarkable Peace Rumor. The New York Post publishes as a con spicuous editorial article the subjoined statement. W know nothing respecting its authenticity, but the details are cer tainly curious. "Among the rumors which are circula ted in this city and elsewhere, respecting the informal conversations which have been held at Richmond and Washington on the subject of peace between the Uni ted States and the insurgent organization, is one of a different character from the rest, which deserves a place by itself. "It is said that in these conversations the plan has been suggested of allowing the rebel host and its leaders to withdraw from the United States to the provinces of Mexico, without hindrance or molesta tion, like an army going out from a be siege'd citadel with the honors of war. Once beyond the limits of tho United States, their expectation would be that they are no longer to be regarded as the enemies of the Federal government, but rather as an integral portion of the Mexi can population, to which they will add themselves, and by the majority of which that is to say, by the liberal party they will expect to be received as friends, if not in the higher character of liberators. "Arrived in Mexico, their plan will be to follow for the present, the profession they have learned in the last four years that of war. The rumor goes that the migrating army will by no means think of recognizing the government of Maximilian. They are to offer their services, as soldiers, to the government of Juarez, fully confi dent that the men who have so long and under so many disadvantages maintained themselves against the. vaet power and resources of the loyal States will find it an easy task to drive out the invader and usurper from Mexico. When this is once accomplished the liberators will of sourse look for their reward. Mexico has large tracts of fertile unoccupied land on which the warriors will expect to settle, and their superior intelligence and energy will give them at ence a high position among the mild, indolent and imperfectly civilized race which forms the mass of the inhabi tants. A large share in the direction of public affairs would ol course fall to their lot, and tho exiles from the United States would hope to become the magnates of the government whose independence they had vindicated. "One stipulation, besides that of not being moleste and interfered with, and one only, we have heard connected with this scheme of migration, and that is, permission from our government to dis pose of the cotton which is still in their hands, in order to raise a sufficient outfit for their retreat to Mexico, and the means of maintaining themselves for a while in their new country. In regard to slavery, we have heard of no condition whatever demanded in CDnnection with this exodus of the rebels from the country of their crimes and their misfortunes. The rumor supposes them too sensible of their own desperate condition, and too well informed of the inflexible determination of the peo ple ot the United States on this point, to raise any question concerning the contin uance of slavery, not to mention the strong hatred borne to slavery in Mexico. A peaceful migration with their arms and the proceeds of their cotton are the sole conditions that we have heard of belonsr ..... o to this scheme. mg K,Gen. R. E. lice has been made commander-in-chief of all tho armies of the Confederate States. JBS?" Rebel deserters assert that Peters burg will positively be evacuated within a few days. Educating the Poor and the Ne groes in Georgia. A correspondent of the Boston Tiavder, writiting from Sa vannah, says : "General Geary, who now governs the city, fully understands his position. I had an interview with him yesterday. . His whole heart seemed interested in relieving the puffeiings of the poor, especially in providing for the wants of the negroes. He most cheerfully gavo his consent in all that we asked for them in the way of hospital arangements aud educational fa cilities. The freedmen's books I brought are very timely. Ruildings have been selected and teachers appointed from among the colored people. The schools are to be opeoed at once. We are going to try the experiment of what the colored people are capable of doing as in and of themselves. In former years I spent a a season in Savannah, and know that as a class they are quite intelligent. "Some thirty oMhem we have organ ized into an educational association, with an efficient sub-committee to manage all details. Twelve persons whom the com mittee presumed we examined, and found capable of teaching reading and spelling, and some of them all the ordinary branches of a common English education. These teachers will be paid by the people them selves, and though I donated the books, they mean that tho scholars shall buy them. The idea of buying, owning, and doing for themselves is a mighty, stim ulus. "In a word, the plan is not to treat them as paupers, or as children, but as having the elements of manhood to be developed, to be made to exert their own strength, and to receive help only as they require it. "I speak now cf the teji thousand who have been raised in Savannah. Of course those who have followed the army from the country are more ignorant and far more destitute. Of these there are some five or six thousand. They will need much help from Northern benevolence. The government is doing nobly. All who can labor are paid 630 a month, and are well fed. Those fit for soldiers will un doubtedly bo taken into the army, for they have pluck for fighting the same here as everywhere else." Gen. Sherman on the Rebellion. The following letter was written by Gen. Sherman, in reply to certain inqui ries from a citizen of Georgia: Headquarters Military Division of the Mississippi, in the field, Savannah, Ga.f January, 8, 1865. Dear Sir : Yours of the 3d instant is received, and in answer to your inquiries, I beg to state I am merely a commander, and act only in that capacity; nor can I give any assurances or pledges affecting civil matters in the future. They -will be adjusted by Con gress when Georgia is again represented there as of old. Georgia is not out of the Union, and therefore the talk of "reconstruction" ap pears to me inappropriate. Some of the people have been and still are in a state of revolt; and as long as they remain armed and organized, the United States must pursue them with armies, and deal with them according to military law. But as soon as they break up their armed organizations and return to their homes I take it they will be dealt with by the civil courts. Some of the rebels in Georgia, iu my judgment, deserve death, because they have committed murder, and other crimes, which are punished with death by all civilized governments on earth. I think this was the course indicated by Gen. Washington, in reference to the Whisky insurrection, and a like principle seemed to be recognized at the time of the Rurr conspiracy. As to the Union of the States under our government, wc have the high author ity of Gen. Washington, who bade us be jealous and careful of it, and the still more emphatic words of Gen. Jackson, "The Federal Union, it must and shall be pre served." Certaiuly Georgians cannot question the authority of such men, and should not suspect our motives, who are simply fulfilling their commands. Wher ever necessary, force has been used to carry out that end; and you may rest assured that the Union will be preserved, cost what it may. And if you are sensi ble men you will conform to this order of things, or else migrat-e to some other country. There is n) other alternative open to the people of Georgia. .My opinion is that no negotiations are necessary, nor commissioners, nor conven tions, nor anything of the kind. Yhen ever the people of Georgia quit rebelling against their government and elect mem bers of Congress and Senators, and these go and take their seats, theu the State of Georgia will have resumed her functions in the Union. These are merely my opinions, but in confirmation cf them, as I think, the peo ple of Georgia may well consider the fol lowing words referring to tho people of the rebellious States, which I quote from the recent annual message of Prcsideot Lincolu to Congress at its present session : "They can at any moment have pcaco simply by laying down their arms and submitting to the national authority under the Constitution. Atter eo much, the government could not, if it would, main tain war against them. The loyal people would not sustain or allow it. If ques tions should remain, we would r.dju?t them by the peaceful means of legislation, conference, courts and votes. Operating only in constitutional and lawful channels, some certain and other possible questions are and would be beyond Executive pow er to adjust, as, for iustancc, the admission of members into Congress aud whatever might require the appropriation of money." The President then alludes to the geD eral pardon and amnesty offered for Uiore than a year past, upon specified and more liberal terms, to all except certain desig nated classes, even these beiug "still with in contemplation of special clemency," and adds : "It is still so open to all, but the time may come when public duty shall demand that it be closed, and that in lieu more vigorous measures than heretofore shall be adopted." It seems to me that it is time for the people of .Georgia to act for themselves, and return, in time, to their duty to the government of their fathers. Respectfully, your obedient servant, W. T. Sherman, Major General. mi Terrible Conflagration in Savan nah. On the night of the 27th and the morning of the 28th days ot January, the city of Savannah, Ga., was the scene of a terrible fire, involving the destruction of a great part of that city. The number of buildings destroyed is roughly estimated at two hundred, and as these were princi pally dwelling houses, the amount of suf fering endured by the homeless wanderers thus cast out during the inclemency of the winter, cannot be estimated. The fire is supposed to have been the work of a rebel incendiary. The arsenal was totally con sumed, and a large number of shells, that had been stored there by the rebels, ex ploded, doing a great deal of damage. It is reported that about twenty persons were burned to death or killed by the explosion of the shell. It will be several days be fore the full damage can be ascertained. "lOR RENT !
